Compressing files via command line on Windows system
I am trying to compress one folder on my local drive, for example:
I am using the following command from the command line (cmd.exe) to perform this operation:
compact /c C:\Templates
But it doesn't work and shows the following message:
1 files within 1 directory were compressed. 0 total bytes of data are stored in 0 bytes. The compression ratio is 1.0 to 1.
My machine is running Windows 7 64 bit.
